impact. but we have had a chance now, 3 1/2 years of a president obama administration. you either love it, hate it or you are indifferent. now he has a record. back in 2007, i think that we put him under the microscope -- as we should any candidate, particularly him because we knew so little about him. he wasn't in the public eye for a long time. now, though, i would expect the people are making decisions, are you better off than you were 3 1/2 years ago? is the world safer? do you think we are going in the right direction? those type of questions. his record has a far greater impact than when he said in 2007, but i could be wrong. >> sure, sure. i agree with you. i don't think this particularly speech is definitive, but it's a reminder obenghazi, for example, you have the same pattern of dishonesty in the obama white house that you had in the speech from 2007. the amazing thing is the degree to which the elite media tries to avoid all of this. they didn't cover it in twint 07. they don't want to cover it in 2012. but have you seen literally in 2 1/2 weeks aircraft pattern of breath-takin

romney can make the case that there will be no change in the next four years because obama didn't deliver the change he promised four years ago, that he said he would lower the unemployment rate to 5.6%, but we've now had our 43rd month of above 8% unemployment. he said that family incomes would go up, but they've gone down $4,000 under his watch. he said that bush was unpatriotic for adding four trillion to the debt over eight years, he's added five trillion over just four years. so he needs -- americans don't want to have more of the same, and obama really tonight has to show how his second term would be different than the first instead of this forward stuff that we've been hearing from him. megyn: you know, joe, i took a look at those fox news polls, and marc's right, the overwhelming majority of americans want change, they don't want to stay the course, but the question is, who does that mean? whose policies do hay want to change? it's something like 95% of republicans want to change course, 51% of democrats and 77% of independents, but when you drill even deeper and ask, well, who's

determine the outcome here. barack obama's victory here in north carolina four years ago was the first by a democrat since 1976. it was helped in large part by a huge turnout by african-americans, a whooping 72%, well above the national average. but his win here was his slimmest margin in the country. a mere 14,000 votes. it looks like he'll have to do as well or better among blacks and other voters in this deeply divided state. the task is made harder by the hit north carolina took in the recession. unemployment was 9.7%, fifth highest in the country. the rate for african-americans is nearly double. and the state has seen enormous change. demographically with the reverse migration of blacks returning and an influx of hispanics and other new residents. and economically. u.n.c. professor and long time political reporter says north carolina is moving in two directions at once >> the up escalator in this state is the economic diversification into higher-wage, higher-skill, research and development, biotechnology. the down escalator is the collapse of the traditional industries of textiles
